Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
The tongue of the just is as choice silver: the heart of the wicked is little worth.
How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
Therefore I love thy commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.
I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.
Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun.
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
2 Corinthians 6:10
As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
